A tweep has caused an online stir after he tweeted about a needy candidate who was allegedly denied help at the Kisumu County offices.
According to the tweet seen by KISUMUINSYDER.CO.KE, the girl scored 410 marks and is to be admitted at the lucrative Alliance Girls.
Pangs of poverty can however not allow her join her dream school as her family can not afford the finances involved to have their daughter admitted at the institution.
Well, the girl is reported to have sought help from the county offices but as per the tweet, she was given a cold shoulder by unnamed officials.
The post elicited divided reactions on social media.
Governor Nyong’os critics taking that opportunity to accuse the county boss and his officials of being mean.
The governor’s communication team has however distanced itself from the tweet saying it’s malicious with unknown intentions.
The unit has clarified that the Executive in charge of Education has been directed to look into the matter and establish credible information about the pupil and table appropriate action.
Below is the tweet that has angered netizens.
An orphan got 410 marks in last years KCPE. she was called to Alliance Girls. She can’t raise the fees. She approached office of Governor @AnyangNyongo and she was chased away. @RamogiFM through mr. Oguyo just talked to the primary school headmaster on air. pic.twitter.com/zCVqZy67ag

It is unfortunate the mother to the kid was turned away at County Government offices.

Not to defend the County Govt, but bursaries and scholarships were advertised in all wards, I think Guardians need to look out for such info as you don't expect Nyongo to pay from his own pocket. I hope she was advised to pick the forms. She scored highly, she deserves

From the conversation I heard,the poor girl visited the governor's office and was told such issues are not entertained at the governor's office by one of the governor's arrogant staffs.#awuoro

Sometimes it's not just about money as a leader the concern and listening plays a big role .I believe the governor can make a few calls and have it sorted…..
